To configure automatic profile removal on iOS devices

For iOS 6 and above devices, you can configure automatic profile removal in Device Manager. You can configure profiles to be removed automatically at a specified date, to be removed manually by the user with password authentication, or never to be removed.

In the iOS profile dialog (e.g., APN configuration creation), at the bottom of the General tab, you can configure the automatic profile removal settings:

  1. Click New Configuration and then click Profiles and Settings.
  2. Select a profile type; for example, APN.
  3. In the iOS 6 profile dialog box, on the General tab, configure the automatic profile removal settings as follows:
    1. In Allow profile removal operation, select one of the following options:
      • Always. Allows the profile to always be removable.
      • Authentication. Allows you to enter a required password that is used when profile is removed. Requires a password.
      • Never. Prevents the profile from ever being removed.
    2. Select the Automatic Removal Date check box if you want to select a specific date on which to remove the profile.
    3. Select the Duration until removal (in days) check box to specify a set a period of time after which the profile will automatically be removed.
  4. Click Create.
